Most Overrated NHL Players
The Top Ten
Scored 0 goals and 1 assist and got swept in the first round. Alex Ovechkin would never.
Caps lost to a wild card team that was in the playoffs for the first time in ten years so the jokes on you - Disturbedpotato
The truth is that malkin is the real face of the penguins, Crosby is thought of as the best because he is a forst liner on a team malkin carries. I believe he is the dirtiest player. Ever see a penguins game with a call against the penguins? I haven't. Also, he is known for diving and embellishing, but when he does so, the other team gets the penalty, it's just not right and is a disgrace to hockey. I can't believe he is thought of as the best. He isn't even on the top 20 right now if you ask me. He is always getting injured, and that hurts the team when your captain is gone. It's time the fans take a stand against the overprivilaged penguins and noncalls. Thank you very much for your time and keep your head up out there.
Just because Crosby is good doesn't mean he is overrated. If it wasn't for Crosby, the Penguins would not be in Pittsburgh. He led his team to three Stanley cups and four eastern conference championships
He's not a good captain and he is also inconsistent. He doesn't step up when needed hence the playoffs. He has no killer instinct and whines about everything. I'm baffled he's considered the best in the world. He's good but he's too immature to ever make an impact in my opinion. He's andy Sandberg on ice.
Can't call yourself the best if you can't get your team into the playoffs. End of story. Only the best can be considered and he isn't among them, points be damned.
Whines to get what she wants
Who's nicknamed "The Whiner"? Wayne Gretzky is! So why isn't he higher than McDavid? - TheHabsFan
People can't admit to the Oilers having the best player ever. come on guys, just own it! - TheHabsFan
He can't get his team to the playoffs he's also a puck hog
A 'pileon' is more use on the ice than Phaneuf right now. Too bad, when he was a Flame he played with passion and fought guys. Now the only thing on his mind is his huge salary.
So sorry, I posted that when he was good, but now I think he should just retire - SayJ123
Phaneuf is the leafs' best defenceman though, although he got traded - SayJ123
He can hit, but that is about it. -
Injury prone. Never lived up to the hype. -
Never the same after the Steve Moore incident. -
Actually he is underrated - Disturbedpotato
So true because now he sucks - Callahan87
Ovechkin leads the caps. Without ovi he would be nothing. People also think of his "15 goals in 15 seconds commercial." Any nhl player can do that. He's nothing
If you are betting your franchise on Ovechkin you are doomed. You have to have a team! That includes at least 2 SOLID lines, 2 good penalty kill lines, an all around line that will do whatever the coach asks, and most of all A HEART! GKG! To quote an NHL rule: Rule 13 Composition of Team
A Team shall be composed of 20 players (18 skaters and two goalkeepers as per Rule 15 (a)(c)(d) - Players in Uniform) who shall be under contract to the Club they represent.
Slow and can't score anymore. -
He stands in one spot and shoots. He's a cherry picker and never passes off. He does have a cannon, but that's it. He is one dimensional. I'll take Sidney Crosby any day.
He's not even the top 100 greatest NHL players of all time
This is a joke
Choke artist who won a singular time.
Thorton hade 92 assists that's why cheechoo did good you can't not be great on a line with one of the best passers in the league
Yeah, a lot of people say Cheechoo was good thanks to Thorton. Couldn't agree more.
People STILL expect good seasons out of him. But this just shows how AWESOME Thornton is. - booklover1
One good season thanks to Joe Thornton. All over for him now though. -
Had a few good seasons way back when. -
Lately been big for penguins, without crosby and malkin
He is the best. People need 2 quit hating and start appreciating. GO PENS!
Should not be here
Compared to his brothers he has got nothing. -
Passed his prime. Time to hang em up. -
He is amazing. And yes he is on top 5 d men of all time.
Everyone thinks he's an all star. Get Real. - booklover1
He's got speed, but that is about it. -
Terrible and overrated - Disturbedpotato
Good that Preds traded him. Most overrated player. - Disturbedpotato
Although he's got lots of talent, leafs fans think they'll win the cup every season because they have Austin Matthews but no blue line. He's not the next Wayne Gretzky, but leafs fans think he's better than Gretzky for some reason.
Was rated as one of the top 10 best current players in the NHL. What a joke.
Leafs fans: mAttHeWs iS bEtTer tHaN mCdAviD - Disturbedpotato
Patrick kane should be captian
He doesn’t play to a 4 mil standard much less a 10.5 standard.
Come on, nobody ever dared hit him and that is why he had all the space and opportunity to score all those goals and make all those assists. If Mario Lemieux was healthy and played the same amount of games, Mario would have easily surpassed Wayne's point total of 2800 or so.
Overrated! I hate how much people adore him! He isn't as good as people say! Connor McDavid has better skills! - TheHabsFan
Greedy overrated selfish!
If you know anything about Hockey Hossa is so underrated. He carried the Hawks Made Toews who he is today. Hardest worker on the team. Sad to see him hang them up.If you notice hawks are not playing as well. True leaders make other players around them better. Not built up by scouts and media TSN.
Yo this guy is amazing my favorite in the nhl and yes I am a hawk fan. Well the whole theam is my favorites.
HOSSA?!? HE IS UNDERERATED IF ANYTHING - Sssamuel2
Marty Brodeur on this list? Brodeur played in an era with lots of scoring and an era with minor scoring. 1995, he was still playing the whole stand up diving routine. Then, later in his career, he used the butterfly technique as well. Watch old clips of Marty Brodeur. He makes diving blocker saves, and in later games, makes even better saves.
Best NFL player there is up to date
Just score scores
He lifted the cup - Disturbedpotato
As a Kings fan I have to admit he is a bit underrated - Disturbedpotato
